Rosie debuts for Hockeyroos
Australia handed a debut to Gold Coast 19-year-old forward Rosie Malone this week, who was made to wait 24 hours for her maiden cap after the First Test against Spain on Monday was called off due to rain.
Rosie was presented her jersey by fellow Queenslander and former Hockeyroos Captain Madonna Blyth.
Malone said she was so happy that the hard work that she had been putting in is slowly paying off.
Australia has had two 1-1 draws with Spain with the final game being played tomorrow, Saturday 20th.
Exciting news for 2 of our local players Corey Weyer and Dylan Wotherspoon who have been named in the 2018 Kookaburra National men's senior hockey squad.
Corey and Dylan will contest for a spot in the Commonwealth Games squad being played at our local centre in April 2018 and then working towards the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Both Corey and Dylan have played for the Kookaburras in series throughout 2017 leading into the naming of the 2018 squad.
